Calgary Couple Downsizers

     Later this year, Kirsten Shaw and her family will move into the house of her dreams. It's taking shape—all 130 square feet of it—right now on a flatbed trailer in her Calgary backyard. Shaw, her husband and 12-year-old son will squeeze into the wee quarters and spend the winter and begin transforming a trailer into what will, eventually, become a (relatively) spacious 200-square-foot dwelling.

     After that, they'll tow their tiny homes on wheels across the continent—the family's first holiday in years— then park it on a plot of land her husband owns on Vancouver Island, where they will settle down. (Follow their progress on the Facebook page Tiny House Calgary and on Google+.)

 

     Shaw says she and her family are done with living large. They live in a rented 2,200-square-foot home filled with "stuff" she doesn't like or use. Moving into such tiny quarters will dramatically reduce the couple's monthly bills, giving them more disposable income, allowing them to work less and spend more time with their family.

     Her husband's three boys, a 12-year-old and 15-year-old twins from an earlier marriage, will join them, too. Kirsten Shaw and her husband, Michael Hunt, have begun construction of a tiny home on the trailer bed of this 1981 International Truck. The couple plan to tow this and a second, slightly larger home to a plot of land in B.C
